The fresh snow we received the past few days have revitalized our trails. Now all we need are cold overnight temperatures to solidify the base.
Our groomer operators are reporting that the trails are in Very Good and in some cases Excellent Condition. We now have a base of about 6 inches. It’s possible that you might see bare spot creep up in a few corners and in heavily wooded areas.
The trails on Booth, Pier, Squirrel & Sunday Lakes are marked. Please stay off of unmarked lakes.
Here’s a summary of how often the trails are groomed (this is the last report that will include this information):
– 4 times per week: Corridor 10; Trail 5 (from Corridor 10 to Corridor 12); Trail 5A; BB
– 3 times per week: Corridor 12; Trail 8; Trail 8B, Trail 7, Trail L, Trail W
– 2 times per week: Trail 5 ( from TIN-524 to Highway 8); Trails 9, A, C, D, G, I, J, P, R and S
– Trail 5A is closed between TIN-651 (the intersection of Trail 5 & Trail 5A) and TIN-653 (the intersection of Trail 5A & Price County Road).
– The swamp on Trail BB has a thin slushy surface. Please ride this trail with extreme caution. Even though it gets groomed on a regular basis, it also deteriorates much faster than most trails because of it’s heavy use.
